Candidates should be highly organized, self-directed, active in social media, and have experience with the Adobe Creative Suite (such as Photoshop, InDesign, and Bridge), Google Analytics, a content management system, and publishing digital content (via online, tablet and/or email). A working knowledge of basic HTML and the use of social media tools is useful.
SKI and Skiing are part of Active Interest Media, a leading publisher of enthusiast consumer shows and publications across all media platforms.

You’ll be joining a hard-working/hard-playing office full of fun, outdoorsy people. You’ll also be able to check out the latest and greatest ski gear, travel on assignment, and meet some of the most influential people in the ski industry. Full health and vacation benefits are included.
